GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. -- Like a lot of high school kids, Thomas Fraser settled in for a boring day on a gray August Monday.   But his definition of boring was a little different than most.   His definition included firing three birdies and carding a 2-over-par round of 73 at Egremont Country Club to win the Berkshire County Junior Allied Championship.   “It all went pretty well. I think I tried to make a lot of pars,” Fraser said. “I wanted to play a boring round.   “It was a nice course, so I was able to make a couple of birdies that I hit in there with the approach shot.”   Fraser of Greenock Country Club recorded birdies on the

BRISTOL, Conn. -- A hop and a homer conspired Sunday to end one magical run for the Pittsfield American Little League All-Stars.   Coventry, R.I., edged the Massachusetts Champions, 3-2, at Breen Field to earn New England’s berth in this week’s Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.   Coventry’s Jake Mather capped a 3-for-3 performance with a solo home run to left to break a 2-2 tie in the top of the fifth inning, and Logan Lama limited a potent Pittsfield offense to three hits in 4-⅔ innings of work.   Pittsfield, which went 3-0 at the regional heading into Sunday’s rain-delayed final, rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the bottom of the

BRISTOL, Conn. — Give Pittsfield American Little League manager Joe Skutnik credit for knowing the opposition.   After Wednesday's win over Rhode Island at the New England Regional, Skutnik was asked about Pittsfield's success against the top of Rhode Island's lineup.   Skutnik was quick to reframe the conversation.   "And the Fuentes kid, he's a good little stick," Skutnik said. "They hide [Sammy Fuentes] down there in the eight hole."   As Coventry, R.I., showed on Friday afternoon, you cannot sleep on the bottom of its lineup.   Little Rhody came up big in the bottom of the sixth, scoring six times to stun New Hampshire,

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Peruse the rosters of the 12 teams competing at this week’s Little League Baseball Eastern Regional Tournament, and a common theme emerges.   The players and coaches frequently have the same last names.   In fact, 10 of those teams have at least one coach -- and sometimes all three -- who are related to at least one of the players.   Only two -- Washington, D.C., in the Mid-Atlantic bracket and the Pittsfield Americans in the New England bracket -- break that trend.   Manager Joe Skutnik and coaches Ty Perrault and Pat Bramer do not have a boy on the Pittsfield AL team that Saturday will play for the New England title and a berth in the Little

BRISTOL, Conn. — As Major League Baseball used to tell us, chicks dig the long ball.   But coaches and pitchers? They dig defense.   The Pittsfield American Little League had plenty of both on Wednesday afternoon.   Antonio Scalise and Evan Blake each homered, and the Americans turned three double plays in a 10-1 win over Coventry, R.I., to advance to Saturday's title game of the Little League New England Regional Tournament.   Owen Salvatore struck out six in a complete game victory on the mound, an effort helped along by twin kills in the first, second and sixth innings.   "After they turned that double play [in the first], not only did it give me a

BRISTOL, Mass. -- On Monday, the Pittsfield American Little League plays its second straight game under the lights at the A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Leadership Training Center.   Night baseball is still failry unique for the 12-year-olds, and that novelty nearly worked against the Americans in Sunday's opener.   Goffstown, N.H., had two runs in and a man on with one out in the top of the sixth, and Pittsfield was clinging to a 4-2 lead when Alex Magdziarsz lofted a fly ball to center field.   After finding the ball in the night sky, Owen Salvatore made the adjustments he needed to make the grab, helping to preserve an eventual 4-2 win.   "Honestly, I

BRISTOL, Conn. -- Evan Blake had 10 strikeouts in his Little League New England Regional debut on Sunday night.   None was bigger than the one that came with two out in the top of the third inning of an eventual 4-2 Pittsfield American Little League win.   It was a scoreless game in the third, but Goffstown, N.H., was threatening to change that with the bases loaded.   And Blake, who had allowed his first two hits in the inning, started off Goffstown's No. 3 hitter with a ball.   That is when Pittsfield manager Joe Skutnik sent assistant coach Pat Bramer to the mound.   "He said: Just relax and take your time," Blake said. "I was rushing a little
